I'm not really about all the complaints that this place was getting. Linda was delightful, a little eccentric, but genuinely beautiful! The Scotia room was fantastic! The king bed was so cozy, the love seat was nice and soft, the A/C eventually cooled down the room, and the view was spectacular. As far as people getting creeped out by the... More

Before I start my review I just want to say that I am very surprised to see the intense spectrum of reviews for this place...seems people either love this place or hate it. I think this proves my point that people are either very open minded travelers or very closed minded travelers. I had no expectations when going to this... More

After spending at least a week there every year for the last seven I have come to consider Cape Breton a second home, and Castle Moffett my home within a home while there. Located centrally on the Island (near Baddeck), Castle Moffett provides a great base for exploring the Island (and for me a great base during the annual, 10-day... More

Great place, fantastic views, extremely clean and comfortable suite. We received outstanding personal service by Linda and her staff! Her 20+ years on the island and her intimate knowledge of the area was priceless when it came to planning our days. The included sailboat cruise was wonderful and the Fortress Louisbourg was worth the drive. Breakfast each morning was exquisitely... More

My husband and I recently made a 3000 km trip by motorcycle to see the Maritimes for the first time. We booked in advance a 3 night romantic stay at "Castle Moffett". No words can describe the disappointment at the price we paid to stay at this "lodging". I'm not sure how this place got a 5 star rating, but... More

My wife and I went to Nova Scotia for the first time last week and rented a room at Castle Moffett. At first glance it is a very nice house, but once you get over that first impression and look deeper into it, you realise it is all a fake and WAY OVERPRICED. It costs us over $1000.00 for 3... More

We booked a reservation in June of this year for a stay at Castle Moffett this coming October. Our credit card was immediately charged $1700. Upon further research we concluded that this property is overpriced. Within 10 days of our initial reservation we called and cancelled. Upon reviewing our credit card statement, it was discovered that they had only refunded... More

Let's start with the positives at Castle Moffet. The setting is beautiful on a hillside with a babbling brook. Nature is always amazing. The grounds and interior of the building are neat and clean. But like the hillside that this "castle" is perched on, everything from there was downhill. The phony Castle is a white washed plywood 1990's structure with... More

There is a line between creating an illusion and taking advantage and this proprietor crosses it. We reserved the three night romance package and made dinner reservations for the first night in advance at the owner's suggestion at the bottom of the reservation email confirmation. Non-refundable pre-payment was required, and we now see why. This would have been atrocious at... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Castle for one night while visiting Nova Scotia. We loved the place! The grounds were beautiful, the lake view breathtaking! Linda made us feel right at home, she was so gracious . Dinner was delicious. The room with twin beds and fireplace was comfortable , made for a princess! We felt pampered here,... More
